At the start of Tuesday night’s Democratic National Convention, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News where he tried to smear a future Joe Biden presidency. It backfired.
“If these guys win, we’re going to wake up in January with Elizabeth Warren as Treasury Secretary,” Cruz said during his Fox News appearance.

Of course, what Cruz thought would be a deal breaker for voters actually attracted voters more to Biden.
Here’s how people responded:
Elizabeth would be a great Secretary of the Treasury. What's the problem?

Don’t forget that Trump said Teddy’s Dad killed JFK

This! He says that like it's a BAD thing. But what he might REALLY be worried about is the investigation into whether he ought to be in that Senate seat, since he used Cambridge Analytica for his data firm when they were U.S. sanctionedhttps://t.co/TyufodPq0u

There it is, folks. The explanation we've been looking for.
How people like Ted —who were so adamantly opposed to Trump prior to his nomination—are now such rabid supporters.
They're more afraid of what Elizabeth Warren MIGHT do as Treasury Sec than Trump WILL do as president.
